Highly touted for its waterfront view, you need not go to the restaurant to see the view, its a public boardwalk. Restaurant OVERPRICED, food adequate as is the service. There are better restaurants on SI.

All I want is at my fingertips as the staff is fabulous. Food the best, drinks over the top, and the ambience to die for with the ocean, VNB,... More

My husband and I and our 2 year old came here for a celebratory dinner for his birthday. They are so accommodating! The food was fantastic too! The entrees took awhile to get to us but it was SO worth the wait! The seafood was outstanding. I'm pretty snobbish and picky when it comes to fine food and this totally... More

Service is terrible. The food is not the greatest in Staten Island. I was there one day on a Sunday around 5 o'clock and the manager was telling me that the kitchen staff was now changing shifts and it would be a while before my meal was to come out boy was he right. This place is more of a... More

The location on the boardwalk, view of Verrazano and excellent food all make for a great experience. Very nice decor inside and out. There is also a bar/ lounge area. Have the Chilean Sea Bass and the lobster corn chowder! So yummy. We were a party of 2 couples this October. Five years ago they did our wedding dinner for... More

This is a nice restaurant in a beautiful location. They have some outside tables and the food whether in or out is pretty good. It is not cheap.
